Offshore Company Formation: How It Works

Posted by Sterlingoffshore on July 1st, 2017

Forming and registering your offshore company should not be too hard, especially if you consult with a professional services provider. You can expect a good firm to have a professional team who will be available to provide you with guidance and be able to answer any questions that you and your advisors may ask, before beginning with your offshore company formation. You will also be informed about best offshore company jurisdiction for your company’s situation. Any potential benefits available through tax treaties will likewise be identified, and you will be provided with guidance on structuring, with consideration given to any possible risks relating to taxation of the structure.

Once you have decided on the services you will get and all the requirements have been identified, the services provider will draft and prepare all of the documents necessary to register your offshore company with the relevant offshore company registry.  The documents are generated from standard templates, making this process fairly easy and simple. After the relevant documents are completed, your services provider should deliver all of these documents to the respective offshore company registrar in order to complete the process of company incorporation. After this, the registrar will return the stamped documents together with a Certificate of Incorporation. These will serve as proof that your offshore company registration has complied with all the legal requirements. This completes the offshore company incorporation process.

Once the company incorporation process is done, your company may need to satisfy a few more requirements such as the following:

  • local registered office
  • local registered agent (if necessary)
  • local company secretary
  • safe custody of all books, registers and records in accordance with domestic legal and regulatory requirements.

Your services provider should be able to help you with these requirements too. It’s even better if it can also provide you with a number of complementary services such as professional directors, nominee shareholders, virtual office, fund administration, offshore bank accounts and others. Consult with a firm that offers reliable offshore company formation and a full range of ancillary and ongoing support services for offshore companies in all of the most popular offshore jurisdictions.
